About Us
Patty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Patty
Age: Deceased, 22 months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Opossum
Home: Granbury, Texas, Hood County, USA
   Patty was left on our doorstep by her mother. Patty was approximately three months old when we discovered her on the back porch with Toby our large black cat. Patty had to be bottle fed for the next few months. She grew up going to work with me everyday so that she would get regular feedings. The office personnel loved her. Patty had the run of the house and was litter box trained. When my husband and I would go out of town Patty would travel with us. She visited people all over the state of Texas and even went to the Formula races at the brick yard in Indiana. Opossums only have a life span of approximately two years if they are lucky. Patty died with cancer November 14, 2000. I still miss her very much. When you see the attached you will know that beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. I hope you see the love in those big black eyes as I did.
